Staff Pick Series: David Paff’s Pick

Tuesday, January 30th, 2018

bowen furnitureStaff Pick Series…

We see furniture day in and day out. We’ve seen styles come and go, and then come around again in a new way. With all that change, it can be challenging to pick a favorite, but we do tend to have pieces that we fancy more than others. We thought it would be fun to share each of our staff’s favorite picks and why.

David Paff’s employee pick…

David appreciates the quality story of solid wood furniture, but he also likes a break from the traditional style that tends to accompany it. That’s why he chose the new Plank Road dining collection from Kincaid as his employee pick. Plank Road offers solid wood construction, with a reclaimed barn wood feel, making it an excellent choice for active families. Available in two finish options, Charcoal and Stone, it has clean lines with simple metal details that seamlessly blends modern and vintage styling. Also, the collection offers a variety of seating and storage options, allowing you to mix and match for your lifestyle. A pair of Oakley upholstered hostess chairs, mixed with ladderback side chairs, and even an upholstered bench gives flexible seating options, and creates an eclectic blend that’s unique and different, not so cookie cutter. Visit our showroom to see Plank Road dining or shop the collection HERE.

What you need to know before buying a sectional

Thursday, February 23rd, 2017

sofasBy: BreeAnn Cook

Most homes today embrace the open concept floor plan, with fewer walls and larger, more spacious living areas. Unfortunately, with so much openness, it can be challenging to arrange furniture. Sectionals are a popular choice for defining the living room, but they can be tricky to order. Here are few things you need to know about ordering a sectional.

1. They are left and right hand pieces, labeled LAF or RAF, meaning left hand facing or right hand facing. When you are facing the piece of furniture, the arm will be either on the left or the right respectively. Some manufacturers will label them LSE or RSE, which means left seated end or right seated end. When you are seated in the piece, the arm will be on your left or right. Make sure you pay attention to these labels and arm placement, to confirm that you purchasing the correct configuration.

2. Most manufacturers offer a sofa with a built in corner. Corner pieces are required when creating an “L” shape, but a built in corner unit often saves money as it reduces the number pieces required. When looking at the component options, be sure to look for the word “corner” when selecting sofa pieces. These can often be mistaken for a left or right sofa piece, especially when looking at line drawings only.

3. Wedge pieces tend to be large and take up more space. If you are trying to conserve space, opt for a corner unit instead of the wedge.

4. Consider seam placement. Since a sectional consists of multiple pieces connected together, there will be seams where each connects. Careful planning will help you conceal these seams. This is another example where using a sofa with built in corner is a good idea, as it eliminates a seam, at least on one side of the sectional. If one portion of the sectional will back up against a wall, plan to have the seam against the wall, not on the floating portion of the sectional. Sometimes, seams cannot be avoided, and in those cases, adding a console table behind the sectional will hide unsightly junctions.

5. Speaking of connections… be sure to ask about how the sectional clips together. You want to make certain that the manufacturer offers some sort of clip system, so that your pieces will stay connected and not move. There are different types of clips and some are easier to reconnect than others. Don’t be afraid to ask your sales person for a demonstration, so that you will know how to fix the issue if your sectional becomes unclipped.

Take your time, draw a sketch if needed, and double check item descriptions before placing your order. Start shopping our sectional selection today. Questions? Give us a call, or email us for more information at 336-765-1360,
